Fall News from Addgene


We’re well into the start of the academic year and here around Addgene HQ, it’s starting to feel like fall. Though the seasons are changing around us (and we're preparing for our annual Halloween costume contest), there's one thing that’s constant at Addgene: the number of plasmids and viral vectors we’re helping you share with the scientific community is always increasing. With so many reagents in the collection, it might be a bit overwhelming to find the new things you may be interested in.

But don’t fret! We have many ways to help make it easier to find what you need. Navigate to our new menu on our homepage and click on “Browse Catalog” where you can search by viral vector or plasmid category. You can also find the search bar at the top of this menu. Our blog features quarterly updates to highlight some of the new deposits: Hot plasmids, What’s new in CRISPR, and New and Upcoming Viral Vectors. Lastly, be sure to subscribe to the blog and follow us on Twitter for even more plasmid and viral vector updates.

Join us for the Reproducibility for Everyone workshop on Saturday October 19 from 9-11AM in Room N228 where reproducibility experts including Addgenie Susanna Bachle will discuss best practices and reagent sharing.


Studying Behavior Using Viral Vectors

By using viral vectors for behavioral research, neuroscientists can more precisely link neuronal activity to behavior. We’ve compiled a quick guide for getting started with viral vectors for behavioral research including some general considerations for designing behavioral assays, choosing serotypes, genetic manipulation, and more.
